Australian Club Nintendo Catalogue Updated

Still no Luigi’s Mansion 2 Diorama, but two new items have appeared on the Australian Club Nintendo website overnight: Hanafuda Cards for 3,000 stars and The Year of Luigi Coin for 1250.

It is said that the modern design of the card set was created in the mid 1700s. Nintendo started out as a manufacturer of Hanafuda cards in 1889. Card set comes included with instructions on how to play “Koi-Koi,” a basic two-player game.

Luigi’s Mansion 2 Diorama Coming to Club Nintendo in Australia!

So buried about halfway down the press release for the recent Nintendo Direct was this little tidbit:

In the meantime, with the Year of Luigi celebrations extending into 2014, a new Luigi’s Mansion 2 Diorama will be available early next year from the Club Nintendo Stars Catalogue while stocks last.

So it’s definitely going to be available on the Nintendo Australia website, though yet to be listed at the time of writing. In the meantime, feast your eyes and drool:

Luigi’s Mansion 2 Diorama

Apparently it’s already available for pre-order on both the Europe/UK and US Club Nintendo websites ahead of a March 2014 release. It seems it won’t appear on the Australian Club Nintendo website until “early next year” as noted in the press release, but it’s only available “while stocks last”, so check often and order quickly. Oh, and according to Nintendo Life, it’s 7,000 stars in Europe, so make sure you’ve got enough!
